KU Victory Parade

As I’m sure you know, I am a graduate of the University of Kansas and a lifelong resident of the Lawrence area. During the recent NCAA tournament, I avoided the Mass Street Crowd. When it came time for the parade, however, there was no way I was going to make it out there and take photos.

Thanks to a tip on social media, I wound up at South Park.

Without further ado, I present to you my photos. Click on the thumbnail to see a higher-res version in Flickr.

Golden light on a Saturday

There’s been a lot going on in my life. I’ve been better at sharing my story on social media as opposed to keeping this website ‘fresh.’

This past Saturday, I managed to get out early and catch some trains at Edgerton City Park.
